Sadly, some athletes use illegal means to win, including blood doping.

Estimate how much faster a 75 kg man can run a mile with blood doping. If we assume he could run a 4 minute mile before blood doping, how much faster will he be after blood doping? Is this a significant decrease in time? Show all calculations and list any assumptions in solving for your answer.
